It has been 20 years since the last breeding bird atlas in New York State. The third atlas will take place from 2020-2025 and involve thousands of volunteers from across the state. Learn about the history of the atlas, the importance of atlas data, and how you can get involved. Atlasing is a great excuse to explore new areas and provides an intimate look into the daily lives of birds. Whether you are a beginner or advanced birder, this unique opportunity will strengthen your birdwatching skills while contributing valuable data to a large conservation-oriented project.
This presentation was given by Julie Hart, Project Coordinator of the New York Breeding Bird Atlas III, SUNY ESF in conjunction with the Kelly Adirondack Center of Union College.
